Anthony Scaramucci Just Weirdly Compared Himself To Monica Lewinsky

The former White House communications director also called a journalist a "lowlife" for recording their conversation.

Former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci on Wednesday accused New Yorker journalist Ryan Lizza of recording him without permission.

Scaramucci will have a chance to clarify his comparison on Monday, when he’s scheduled to be a guest on Stephen Colbert’s “Late Show” on CBS.
